This is a nice Renaissance silver finger ring, dating to the 16th - early 17th century A.D. The ring is set with the original jet black glass gem, held within a rubbed over bezel. Such a ring would have been worn by a merchant during the period of Queen Elizabeth Ist. Today it has survived in excellent condition, suitable to be worn again with care!
